Sinfonietta – Kylián

Leoš Janáček – Nederlands Dans Theater

Czech-born Jiří Kylián was inspired by the beautiful music of his compatriot, Janáček, to create this fluid, spacious, romantic ballet which has become a milestone in contemporary choreography. The forceful fanfares of Janáček's music are matched by a ceaselessly energetic and exuberant display of movement, creating and image which carries through the composer's intention of evoking the spirit of the "modern, free Czech."
